Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Chino
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Bernardino County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. California partition actions provide a legal mechanism for co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes allow a co-owner to file a lawsuit in court to have the property divided, either physically or by sale. The court will then order the division of the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any proceeds from the sale of the property must be divided among the co-owners in proportion to their respective interests in the property.
Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:
- What are the costs associated with a partition action? The costs of a partition action generally involve the attorney’s fees, and court costs, but can involve referee fees and broker’s fees if the property is sold.
- How to force the sale of jointly owned property? A partition action is the only statutory method to ensure the end of the co-ownership dispute.
- What are the steps involved in a partition action in California? The first step is to file a partition complaint in California, which is followed by a request for the court to enter an interlocutory judgment of partition, thereby appointing a partition referee under the partition statutes.
- What is California’s Partition of Real Property Act? Effective January 1, 2023, California’s new partition law allows defendants to buy out the interests of the plaintiff at an appraised value.
- Can heirs force the sale of property? Heirs can force the sale of real property in California once that property is distributed to them. However, sometimes, the property is still held in a trust where the trustee will sell the property. When there is no trust, the probate court may decide that the probate administrator will sell the property before it is distributed in fractional interests to the heirs.
Harrington v. Goldsmith – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Harrington v. Goldsmith, 136 Cal. 168 (1902), the issue was whether a partition of real property could be made without the consent of all the owners. The plaintiff, Harrington, owned a one-third interest in a piece of real property with two other owners, Goldsmith and another individual. Harrington sought to partition the property, but Goldsmith refused to consent. The court held that a partition of real property could not be made without the consent of all the owners, and that Harrington’s attempt to partition the property was invalid. The court also held that Goldsmith had the right to refuse to consent to the partition, and that Harrington could not force a partition without Goldsmith’s consent.
